This paper presents a non-interface-fitted mesh method for fluid-thin structure interactions. The key components are the Lagrangian Lagrange-multiplier (LLM) method and the extended finite element method (X-FEM). The LLM couples fluid and thin structure through the Lagrangian nodes of the structure element. The X-FEM gives flow discontinuity to the fluid elements intersected by the structure element. The combination method is verified through applications to flow with a domain-partitioning boundary and flow-induced flapping of a flexible filament. We discuss how the discontinuities at the interface enhance the simulation results, how the lack of the discontinuities affects the results, and identify some effects of these discontinuity enrichments.

    The design of extrusion dies depends on the experience of the designer. After the die has been manufactured, it is tested during an extrusion trial and machined several times until it works properly. The die is designed by a trial and error method which is an expensive process in terms of time...
